"Still, a lot of good work—verifiable, informative, brain-leapingly strange—is being cast out of this paperless, infinitely expandable accordion folder by people who have a narrow, almost grade-schoolish notion of what sort of curiosity an on-line encyclopedia will be able to satisfy in the years to come.
"Anybody can 'pull the trigger' on an article (as Broughton phrases it)—you just insert a double-bracketed software template. It's harder to improve something that's already written, or to write something altogether new, especially now that so many of the World Book–sanctioned encyclopedic fruits are long plucked. There are some people on Wikipedia now who are just bullies, who take pleasure in wrecking and mocking peoples' work—even to the point of laughing at nonstandard "English." They poke articles full of warnings and citation-needed notes and deletion prods till the topics go away."

My edits to Preputioplasty demonstrate this. Please contact me if you are a young gay man, I guarantee a free and confidential meeting. warmest regards, Masalai
